PURPOSE For arthroscopic double-bundle (DB) anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, the size of the available area for tibial bone tunnel placement is crucial. Therefore, tibial insertions of the anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral (PL) bundles in the area intercondylaris anterior (AIA) of the tibia were quantified, landmarks were characterized, and an arthroscopic orientation model was developed. METHODS The tibial insertions of the AM and PL bundles were dissected in 50 human… CONTINUE READING
